Yolis...est de sortie. We have to guess at this beautiful image by Walery of Paris. Yolis is a French nickname for Yolanda. Est de sortie, seems to be something like "on the journey," or "on the adventure." So, perhaps, "The Travels of Yolis?" What is particularly interesting about the title, is that we've come across a number of cards with these same words, and each seemed to have a different artiste, presumably playing the role of this character Yolis. Similar to the way the character Pierrot would appear in endless sketches, different in particulars, but basically the same, for centuries, really, and played by, obviously many different actors.

So, our guess is that this was a popular bit of sketch comedy, or drama, that appeared for a period of time in different venues, kind of like today, on television, sketch comedians like Katherine Tate, or going back a bit, Steve Martin and Dan Ackroyd, would reprise the same characters over and over again in different sketches, much to the delight of their fans.
Some day, some poster seller on Etsy might be puzzling over the origin of the term, "We are two wild and crazy guys," except, of course, that those plaid bell-bottoms, pretty much solve the puzzle, don't they :)

Really a gorgeous photograph by Walery. Particularly fond of the parasol and the silky, metallic sheen to its pattern. A lovely card in very nice condition. Please examine our high res scans for detail.

Postage is for first class shipping in a secure photo mailer, and we happily combine shipping on all paper goods. If you purchase two cards, we will refund the postage on the second card, and when you purchase three or more cards from us at the same time, your shipping will be entirely free, except for international orders which, because of sudden increases in international shipping rates will still be charged one card's shipping fees on orders of three or more.
